Kauai Island

 

Kauai Island, also known as the Garden Island, is the oldest, northernmost and fourth largest island in Hawaii. It was formed over six million years ago. With rainfall ranges from 35 inches to 460 inches, it is also one of the wettest places on earth.

 

The island occupies over five hundred square miles and its ninety mile coastline is one of the most beautiful and memorable ocean fronts in the world. The sparking blue waters beckon to tourists and locals, and hundreds of them visit and find retreat in the tropical paradise every year.

The islandís beauty is beyond description. It features lush greenery and picturesque beaches from the largest canyon in the Pacific called the Waimea Canyon to the 2,000 foot cliffs of the Na Pali Coast.

The islandís eastern and northern portions, which are on the windward side, get the most rain, and, therefore, are the most lush and green parts on the island.

Visitors to the lovely island of Kauai find themselves entranced and lost in its subtle, natural majesty

and rich tropical heritage. Kauai exudes the aloha spirit that gives Hawaii its identity which makes the chain of islands one of the most popular tourist destinations across the globe.
